Before this thread takes a nosedive, I want to say that this is not an issue of modesty. Of course it is wrong to immodestly display one's wife. That is not the purpose here. In I Cor. 11, we learn that Christ is the glory of the father and the wife is the glory of her husband. God went out of his way to display his glory in Christ. He put Christ on display for the entire world to see that they might know Him. God the father did not hide the glory of Christ. It was veiled temporarily only because Christ had to be completely man. Should husbands do differently? I don't think they should. One should want his bride to look her best at all times, in all circumstances, and in all places. IMHO, it is shameful to see a fella have a wife who does not keep herself up or goes out of her way to look drab, and joyless. What does that say of the guy? My immediate thoughts would be that he is ashamed of her and her looks. No, if she is to be the glory of the man, she should do her best to look it. He should not try to hide it either. Both parties are responsible here. Does anyone else agree?
